Album: Brave New Universe
Release Date: July 23, 2016
Genre: multi Culti-Indie
This album, Brave New Universe released by Last Hologram is an exceptionally well produced album. It reminds me of a mixture of all good sounds that come from indie bands from all over the world. The songs have an essence of U2 and electric 80’s mixed up into an awesome album. With the amazing voice of Arunachal Subramanian, lead singer. The grandson of Indian classical music composer Indira Natesan (aka grandma). Devin Hannan (long-time songwriting collaborator and guitarist), Jen Benton (bass player for The Cliks and Andy Kim), James Scott (drummer for Hot Wax Meltdown), (sound Designer, Dead Red Velvet and others), Scott Galloway (keyboards/synth, Dean Brody and others), Stephan Szczesniak (drummer for Hawksley Workman, Sarah Slean, and others), and Marc Rogers (bass player for Philosopher Kings). I really enjoyed the diversity of sounds in this album and especially the vocals of Arunachal Subramanian. You can check them out on their social media sites here.
Inspirational Interviewer and Promotional music lover for artists.
Born in Kingston, I grew up with the likes of Dan Akroyd and his blues influence and also The Tragically Hip, plus live shows downtown in the streets and country bands in the pubs.
I love music in all forms and genres. I can adapt my ear to enjoy and appreciate all instrumentals and vocals. I started writing about certain artists that I grew up listening to and then I reached out to artists for interviews. I have done over 20 interviews with artists and CEOs of industry companies from all over the world.
Now, with Canadian Beats I have an opportunity to improve my journalistic abilities and to get the word out there for artists, and best of all to go to shows and get that personal feeling. I get to represent Canadian music on a higher level. We need to open more doors and have more shows and venues, as well as get the world to come to us. That is my goal.
